Is Fixing your Front Bumper a DIY job?

It could be.  An accident that's left the front of your car or truck smashed up isn't the end of the world.  You’ve smashed the front end of your vehicle. Winter snow storms are prime time for rear ending another car or truck.  The type and amount of car insurance that you have will go a long way in determining what to do next.

Here is a major consideration…there’s very little way of knowing for sure whether your frame suffered damage by looking at it at home.  If the entire car or truck looks like it’s sitting much lower on one side, you may want to get your vehicle inspected by a collision specialist to determine how far off things have gotten. 

Over time, and frequent driving in all types of changing Louisville area weather the decision to do it yourself may be a costly and dangerous one.  Why not have any front-end collision damage checked?  We are here for you.  Just make an appointment at our auto body repair shop located at 8272 Dixie Highway.  We are Don Embry Body Shop.  Give us a call at (513) 935-1373.

Painting Auto Body Panels and Blending Paint

Most vehicles are composed of a number of separate sections and parts that are welded or bolted together, resulting in a single motorized unit.  Professionals concerned with auto painting will refer to these parts as auto body panels, such as quarter panels, door panels and rear body panels. 

Now, if there is a lot of body collision damage extant, you will have to spray the complete auto body panels instead of spraying specific spots.  If a vehicle has minor dents scattered all over its hood for example, it is much easier, and the finished look is much more uniform.

These are the processes that a professional auto body paint professional must look at before beginning your project.  For over five and a half decades that is what the auto body pros at Don Embry Body Shop serving all of the Louisville area have done.  Call ahead and make an appointment at their 8272 Dixie Highway location (513) 935-1373.
